tactic or a promise? okay, so, anna, first we had the debt ceiling. then we had the fiscal cliff, now we have this sequestration, which is really forced budget cuts. doesn't matter what you call it. it's the third time that the sky is falling. when are people going to stop believing that the sky is falling or top the sky from falling and vote in new people? >> i think the american people have stopped believing the sky is falling already. i see a lot less anxiety and sense a lot less anxiety about this than we had during the fiscal cliff. look, don, this has become like a bad halloween movie. jason never dies. he comes back and comes back and comes back and every time the movie is worse. it really has shown tremendous lack of responsibility. you know, the president came up with this idea, he doesn't want to take ownership, the republicans, the congress passed it. they don't want to take ownership and now it is everybody's problem. but we cannot be having on the -- you know, being on the verge of a nervous break down -- >> every couple months. >> -- every three months. we do not have the l

the launch of this new $60 million campaign to exploit the wrangling over the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling and the sequester, the misinformation campaign has worked. a bloomberg poll on the size of america's budget deficit shows 62% of americans think the deficit is getting bigger. 28% of americans think that it's staying the same. and get this number, only 6% agree with the truth. my friends, the deficit is shrinking. the congressional budget office says the deficit is down to $845 billion. it is projected to be $600 billion less than when the president took office. americans need to break out of this misinformation loop, don't you think? if they want to listen to a republican, maybe they should try listening to outgoing transportation secretary ray lahood. he spoke about the sequester consequences today, including the loss of 100 air traffic controllers. >> this requires compromise. this requires republicans stepping forward with some ideas about how to keep essential services of government running at the level that people have been accustomed to. this is not rocket science. >> well, it'

in their perception caved on the fiscal cliff and then having put off the debt ceiling, the republicans really feel like this is something they have to stand their ground on. >> chris, karl rove superpac has an ad out of bom's mess. let me play it and get your reaction to this. >> a bad idea. are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their job. teachers laid off. air traffic controllers and airport security. this is hardship on a lot of people. scene zone yours. middle class families. scramble to find -- >> is this ad effective? you can take out the cut-out of the president and put in speaker boehner. he said he would like not to have the sequester come down. >> after that ad, i know why the group was so effective in the last election. >> that was an easy one. it's pretty janky but they're trying to say it's obama's mess and does it instead put the spotlight on the divide within the republican party? those things the president is saying is exactly what speaker boehner has said. >> i think the problem is if you're trying to shift blame to the president right now given the president's l

politicians why they do not do more of it. that is why republicans caved on the debt ceiling. that is why they will cave on some of these other fiscal things going forward. it is up to the voters to make this happen. the politicians just react to the pressures. host: steve mcmahon, a co- founder of purple strategies, and also a media strategist for democratic campaigns. thank you so much for joining us. david winston, a brief thought? guest: if look at what newt gingrich did and bill clinton did, balancing the budget, getting unemployment under four%, bill clinton and newt gingrich laid out that pattern. i wish president obama would engage the house republicans the way bill clinton did. host: david winston, a republican strategist, you can hear his election analysis on cbs news. coming up next, we will look at the executive order the president signed last week with larry clinton of the internet security alliance. then our next guest will be an expert on nuclear weapons, who will talk about which nations have nuclear capabilities. all of that after this break. ♪ >> we have a habit in thi

ceiling fight coming up again in may. so there's a lot of uncertainty around fiscal policy, around government contracting of all kinds. so it's going to be a sort of rolling snowball effect, i might call it, where it gets bigger and bigger. and by may this may be the only thing we're talking about. >> richard, one could wonder at this point, what was the point of setting the sequester limit if now we're just figuring out ways to come up with a new deal? this was supposed to be the deal. this was supposed to be the thing that forced action. >> right. >> what was the point of it if we're not going to enforce it? >> that's a very good question. what was the point of it? the point of it was that people had crawled out on a limb, and they needed to come off it somehow. the very people who crawled out on that limb are now saying, how did we ever get here? you made me do it. it is ridiculous. and unfortunately, you know, what's that hillary clinton line that she used to use? the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. just in ter
